Fendi showcases a utilitarian romance with garments engineered for an evocative, feminine Spring line.

September 25, 2018

Entwined in an urban jungle, the Fendi Spring 2019 RTW collection by Karl Lagerfeld delights in the symmetries of the natural world, where the pragmatic and the exotic combine.

Through looking-glass transparency, airy perforations breathe life into contoured masculine shapes: gathered patch pockets, ruched sleeves and a bib collar softens jackets, parkas and fluid blousons in embossed FF logo leather, summer wool, or PVC.

Double corsets define a graphic waist sculpted in rich leather or matte poplin, as print organza jacquard and filmy intarsia knits create sensual shadow play. Tessellated patterns in sage, cognac, burgundy, tangerine, optic white, denim, and sand swirl in circles of flora and fauna across iridescent silk dresses, refracted furs and full skirts above scuba court shoes and sandals.

Designed by Silvia Venturini Fendi, the Spring 2019 accessories collection features the iconic Peekaboo bag adorned with its DeFender waterproof shell, interchangeable handles and novelty utility pockets: echoing tool belts with pouches for your phone and coins. The legendary Baguette returns, adorned in fantasy sequin embellishments and featuring a new oversized shape with ultralight glove-soft embossed logo leather that appears also on the new ‘Upside Down’ folding envelope bag with a FF logo clasp.

Notable names in attendance included Nicki Minaj, together with influencer Chiara Ferragni and her husband, rapper Fedez.
